Ex-CIA officer Philip Giraldi: Israel spies the most on the US




Article from Presstv.ir:


Former CIA counterterrorism officer Philip Giraldi says Israel conducts more espionage against the United States than any other US ally.

The former CIA officer explained to a Press TV reporter in Washington how Israel steals both technologies and secrets from the US and sells them to other countries.

An example, Giraldi said, is the Chinese Chengdu Jet J-10 that has been built with technologies that originally came from the US.

This is despite the fact that Israel relies heavily on the US for political and military support.

“It should almost be seen as an act of war,” Giraldi emphasized.

He also made a reference to the strong influence the Israeli lobby is allowed to exercise in Washington.

The ex-CIA officer, who is currently the Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest Foundation, has authored the report The Spy Who Loves Us.

In the report, Giraldi has sought to expose the dangers and costs that the Israeli espionage poses for the US.

According to the report, almost all US government bodies, including the FBI and General Accountability Office, have confirmed that Israeli espionage continues to take place.

In a 2010 interview with Press TV, Giraldi said "many of these state agencies are actually Israeli companies" that are working in line with the US government.

"This happened recently in Pennsylvania, where an Israeli company was collecting information on war protesters and in the state of New Jersey an Israeli was appointed as homeland security director for the State."

A Washington Post investigative report showed that the US government is using the largest and most technologically advanced system in the country's history to spy on its citizens.

The system collects, stores and analyzes information on thousands of US citizens with the help of every state and law enforcement agency and then feeds the information to the FBI.
